My daughter, Amelia, and the swimming pigs after tourists left, Major Cay Island, Bahamas, An Island in the Bahamas Where Pigs Swim Free, Voyager Assignment, March 2016.
Amelia, pigs and a chicken in front of the island’s thick foliage. When the tourists were away, I felt as if I were in another time period. I felt like a time traveler, an explorer in the past. It was very serene. Wild goats could be seen at dusk. When I photographed Amelia, I imaged her as Tarzan, alone on a deserted island, as an equal with the native pig inhabitants.
My dream vacation location. I asked if I might bring my daughter, having photographed Amelia w/ animals for a long term project. Surprisingly the island's pigs were the normal subjects & the international tourists were the exotics in appearance and behavior.
